MUSC0232 - Music in the United States


In this course we will examine folk, classical, and popular music in the United States from the 17th century to the present.

Students will explore music’s relation to historical events, other artistic movements, technological changes, and questions of national identity and ethnicity. Topics will include music in the British colonies, minstrelsy, American opera and orchestras, jazz, popular music, and the experimentalist composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Music reading skills are useful but not required. 3 hrs. lect. disc. ART NOR

PSCI1031 - Protest Music-Comparative


In this course we will examine how marginalized populations around the world use music to interpret, explain, and respond to political, racial, socioeconomic, and gendered inequities. Because music is produced for a wide audience, it is important for the construction of group identity and a useful means of protest. We will discuss the domestic politics of countries such as Nigeria, Jamaica, the U.S., and Brazil by reading the literature of comparative politics, sociology, and critical race and gender theory. Our discussion of these topics will help us better understand how power in various forms is used to repress, and how music challenges existing hegemonies.

7601 Ralph Ellison in Context


This seminar pursues close readings of Ralph Ellison’s essays, short stories, and novel, Invisible Man. The “in context” component of the seminar involves working from Eric Sundquist’s Cultural Contexts for Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man and with many aspects of American literature, history, music, and art. Put another way, the student presentations should provide cultural contexts for Ellison above and beyond what Sundquist provides just for Invisible Man. (Deepening what Sundquist offers on a given context is also an acceptable project.)

FMMC0355 - Theories of Popular Culture


This course introduces a range of theoretical approaches to study popular culture, exploring the intersection between everyday life, mass media, and broader political and historical contexts within the United States.
